Ravenloft Campaign: Woven Fates

Tonight, I relate the story of a group of strangers that met here in the Land of Mists and, forced by destiny, wandered its roads in formidable adventure. Join us as I lead you from their first meeting along through their travels, their misfortunes and their shining moments. Grace them with your compassion in their losses; bless them with your support when the sky is dark and bleak. Do not forget to bestow your praise upon them as they vanquish terror and hold back the minions of darkness. Raise your arm to cheer for their victories!
And above all, share your glass with us for them, both in sorrow and elation, as you accompany them in the thorny road from lost adventurers to heroes of the mists.

Come, huddle with us by the fire here in the dark. The night is cold, but within the ring of Vardos, its evils cannot touch us. Tonight, you are a guest of the Vistani and nothing will harm you. Come, the Prastonata is over and now is time for the Doroq. Let the tales now unfold, let the revelations begin...

Yuri Azimov - Lost thoughts in the wild

We rested within the stone circle, waiting for the sunrise. I found myself recalling vivid memories from my time spent at the University. The knowledge I acquired there is invaluable. It allowed me to perceive greater forces at work around us when the Mists formed, and to suspect of this appealing child of the night, this Vampyr. It is important to know, to have a clue.

This stone circle reminds me an archaic temple. The altar in the centre of the circle is carefully preserved, the vegetation well trimmed as not to hide or overgrow the stones, and everything feels well tended. An archaic temple, but a temple still in service. A temple with some mighty blessing in place to keep the Vampyr at large. According to professor Erbius, some temples were warded with powerful dweomers. Incantations were placed as marks of invisible force and authority, that only magic or heightened sensibility of some rare individuals can reveal.

Marks. Why didn't I think of this before? The spider rose flower could be a mark in Kirien's room. It would allow an outsider to pinpoint the location of the room. Kirien received the flower two days before his death. At that time it was red, but then changed appearance to white with red lines. It is a rare flower, and would be easily spotted if placed near a window. And even if it was kept inside, there are magical ways to locate hidden objects from a safe distance. The flower would be a good choice due to its rarity in Keshgel. I suspect there is a meticulous plan behind all these occurrences. The murders were planned to the finest of details, leaving nothing at chance. I pray Ezra will enlighten us so we can stop what evil is afoot.
